Dr. Perkins practiced at New Baltimore Animal Hospital for over 20 years and served as our Co-Chief of Staff until his passing. He grew up in East Greenbush, New York, and received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in 1988. He then went on to earn his DVM degree from Tufts University in 1994. After graduating from vet school, he practiced in Wynantskill, New York and Bennington, Vermont.
Within the veterinary field, Dr. Perkins was particularly interested in preventive medicine, pain management, and Fear Free techniques. He believed in delivering the best possible care for his clients and their pets. Outside of work, he enjoyed hiking, fishing, camping, and spending time with his two cats, Sushi and Hanley.
A great friend, colleague, and veterinarian, we miss him dearly.
